Brooklyneer to be More Obnoxious Than Previously Thought

New, 24 comments

The Brooklyneer, the downtown restaurant that is bringing all the artisanal wonders of Brooklyn to the Manhattanites who don't want to take an F or an L train opened on Monday, and British owner Neena Dutta promised the restaurant wouldn't just be "Brooklyn in a bottle."

But that doesn't mean their menu isn't going to have a wonderfully helpful map and key!

Each sandwich and slider is named after a different Brooklyn neighborhood—Flatbush is jerk chicken, Carroll Gardens is a meatball sub—and helpful icons like pigs, pies, chickens, and radishes show diners which foodstuff is from which part of the map. Also, a blurb at the bottom explains the mission, "Our goal is to bring Manhattan the newly emerging food & drink artisans from where else but Brooklyn." Hey the concept worked for Borough Food & Drink right?
